. the broader discussion of a mocking, not just with handsets but the vices and technology is a very important one for us to have. i am hopeful that congress will have it in the future, but the reason that is because with the world we live in with digital media and new technology you can put a technological protection , you could put that on just about anything these days. does it mean to own something in the digital age. i think one of the best examples right now is cars. best technology on wheels these days. you will find it in your car. if you want to change your oil, you should be able to do that, but with a car these days you have a light that tells you the sometimes you could not turn that light off unless you have the tool to circumvent that on your car. there are a number of things now and in the future where we will see many factors putting locks and devices and it is important if itk at them and we see is worthwhile to creep exemptions for them. i would say for someone to be able to change the oil and a car they've bought is a common sense fix. certainly not asking that you eliminate

remember looking at the television and watching them in thinking that this technology is amazing and frightening. frightening and awesome and all inspiring all at once. it gives us the ability to pinpoint targets with laser like precision. a discussed the key people that we went after. i wondered if that was true. often times what we were seeing on tv screens is was not what was happening on the ground. and it's old enough to with anti-vietnam activism and we realized early on that the government tells you one thing about things like civilian casualties. it will i went to afghanistan it was a frightening time to be there because there was a lot of bombing going on. immediately i realized that there were lots of civilians were being killed and that this was not being reported. but the u.s. has desire to get the people who attacked us on 9/11 so there was a somewhat cavalier attitude towards collateral damage. i also realized over the evolution of these years post-9/11 that something else very different had happened, which was in the beginning there was a lot of support in both afg

, and globalization and technology have accelerated these changes. consider now how different our world was in the summer of 2001. leaders of egypt, iraq, and libya were entrenched in power. barack obama was an illinois state senator, and arnold schwarzenegger was a movie actor. 10 years ago, most americans had never heard of a credit default swap or mortgage-backed securities. lehman brothers had celebrated its 150th anniversary and in 2001, mark zuckerberg was captain of his high-school fencing team. borders bookstores had $3 billion in annual revenue and meanwhile, kindle something you did to a fire and nook was merely a small corner of the room. most americans knew little about osama bin laden or al qaeda. at the time, i was u.s. attorney in san francisco and i myself being out here paid little attention to those terrorist attacks that were occurring overseas. today, our world can change in the blink of an eye. the effects of that change are felt more rapidly and more broadly than ever before. consider the current economic climate. when companies fail to recognize and adapt to chang

? >> i think we have more technology partners than anybody in sports. so, when we're looking at it, it's not about, you know, what technology name is on top of the stadium. that wasn't how we were coming about this. it was really the experience of the stadium. and technology is something that makes your experience better. i think mayor mathews hit it very perfectly. levi's was the original innovator in the bay area. they were the original technology company. if you didn't have better jeans and better clothing then we might not all be here in the same sense that we are today. so, technology tends to change over time, but, again, it's not about technology. it's about the user experience. and i think that's what we're doing. and i think levi's screams user experience. it screams comfort at a game. we're going to make sure that the back end works so when you're coming with your smart phones, your tablets, et cetera, you know, levi's designs pretty darn good pockets so you can bring those in there. now we're going to make sure that you can use everything to its fullest potential. >> i'd alm

companies are doing, the technologically oriented companies that are part of a share economy, get more people involved in the economy in general, and creating ideas about how people can participate. we came across a very great idea that as we go through more exercises in our disaster preparedness, ann and her staff have been great at that. in fact, the last one i kind of had fun in, how do we feed 10,000 people in the middle of the tenderloin in a major erredthtion quake disaster. we walked through that. we saw how meals are served. we tried to do it in the proper way. ~ earthquake we know we're going to need a lot of help. the main message that we wanted to have was after a disaster hits, we want the message to be out before disaster, during a disaster, and right after, that we welcome everybody to participate in our recovery. and the best way to recover quickly and faster is we engage everybody immediately about how we can help and assist each other. and that's partly a philosophy of the sharing economy as well. and whether it's a need for space, people need to have space as they did

, fcc members, commissioners, staff, chiefs.- it is important to us. it is a technology business. it is more than a simple wire that goes through your business -- they go through your community. it provides a lot of things that connect our customers to what is important to them. we never forget that. and national shows like this, we have a chance to talk about it. that is an we are. we connect people to things they care about. cox lives that motto every day. i will talk about a couple of things. what we want people to take away as innovation is taking place. you probably heard interviews you have done. if you look back to 1996, the telecom act, you advance for to how much of this industry has spent in infrastructure. that assessment over $2 billion. over $24nvested billion. when you see the trends and what is going on a here about mobility and wi-fi which customers like, we announce we are doing a metro wi-fi exchange. 150,000 hotspots in the country. nobody provides that many hotspots. that will continue to grow. it is our consumers another place they can connect area while they
